Carlos Santana, Abraxas (1970)

annunciation-1961
This album cover was actually a painting by Marti Klarwein, called Annunciation. You can see the obvious parallels to Bitches Brew. He did that cover too. The mysticism, the emphasis on black, the depiction of nature, celebration of culture..there’s a lot going on.

You can read more about Marti Klarwein and his insight to his work. He’s got really great stuff man. http://www.matiklarweinart.com/en/gallery/annunciation-1961.htm and http://www.matiklarweinart.com/artworkgallery.php

 

 

Thelonious Monk septet, Monk’s Music (1957)

 

Stan Getz, West Coast Jazz (1955)

 

Jutta Hipp with zoot sims (1957)

This is a dope cover. Simple, playful, elegant. Check out the tune “Violets for your furs”. One of the best versions of that jazz standard in my opinion.

 

Oscar Peterson, Collates (1952)
